Supported collectors list

Netdata uses collectors to help you gather metrics from your favorite applications and services and view them in real-time, interactive charts. The following list includes collectors for both internal system metrics, and external apps/services metrics.

Read more about collectors and how to enable them in our collectors documentation, or use the collector quickstart to figure out how to collect metrics from your favorite app/service with auto-detection and minimal configuration.

If you don’t see the app/service you’d like to monitor here, check out our GitHub issues. Use the search bar to look for previous discussions about that collector—we may be looking for contributions from users such as yourself!
